Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Market Vaults

Excellent real ale pub with a narrow frontage but extending back through two bars to a slightly raised seating area at the rear. Very traditional furniture and decor throughout, although the piped music was a bit of a surprise. Eight cask beers, ranging from the regular Joule's Pale, through the Holt's Two Hoots (£3.60), one each from Holden's and Rowton, a couple of Oakhams and Jaipur to Sarah Hughes dark ruby mild.

A very welcoming and well run traditional old pub. On ordering a beer, the bar staff/management always ask if you have a CAMRA card. Later on they came round with free portions of chips and garlic mayonnaise.
On entry, there is a small bar room with a large Joules mirror over the fireplace. There is comfortable bench seating under the window and a small two sided bar with 8 handpumps in the opposite corner. A large fridge on the right contains more than a dozen traditional boxed ciders. Customers ordering cider were offered samples to try. A larger long narrow room with its own bar followed behind the entry room. A top class pub deserves a maximum score from me.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Market Vaults

There was a small hand written note on the main door on our arrival, which read, 'all welcome come on in, great atmosphere'. Obviously the manager was right, as we did get a good welcome and the atmosphere was friendly and jovial.
The front room consisted of a small corner bar, which had a substantial looking brass handrail surrounding the countertop.
There was also a Victorian cast iron fireplace, with a lit fire.
The front area also had buttoned red leather banquette seating. Between the front room and back lounge, was a short lobby housing a wooden pew. The chap I was talking to, said he used to sit there in the early 1970's whilst he watched his Father playing dominoes and came out when the sandwiches arrived.
Eight handpumps on the front bar, so we went for the Joules Pale Ale, Teighworthy Climate Change, PenPoint Stormer IPA and Colchester AK Pole. Also, there was a choice of 16 ciders, served from the fridge in the front room.
